Brian Daubach (born February 11, 1972 in Belleville, Illinois) is a major league first baseman for the Memphis Redbirds, the AAA affilliate of the St. Louis Cardinals. He bats left-handed and throws right-handed. He has often served as a designated hitter and can also play the outfield.
Daubach was selected by the Mets in the 17th round of the 1990 amateur draft. In 1995, he crossed picket lines to be a replacement player (scab) during the MLBPA players' strike, but the strike ended before any of the replacements saw game action. He toiled for seven years in the Mets' minor league system without breaking through to the majors before being granted free agency. In 1997, he signed with the Florida Marlins organization and made his major league debut in 1998. Since then he has played for the Boston Red Sox (1999-2002, 2004) and Chicago White Sox (2003). He started 2005 with the Norfolk Tides, a Triple-A affiliate of the Mets in the International League. On June 16, 2005, he finally made his debut with the club that drafted him fifteen years earlier.
Daubach's best seasons have come with the Red Sox where averaged 21 homers and 75 RBI per year. In his seven-season major league career, he has compiled a .261 batting average with 92 home runs and 330 RBI in 646 games. During those years Daubach is considered a founding member of the "Boston Dirt Dogs".
